Whether you’re hosting friends and family or having dinner alone on the couch, you deserve to feel fancy while you dine. There’s nothing like a stylish set of dishes to elevate your at-home dining experience — and that includes the glassware, too. While stocking up on all the different types of glasses you need can be expensive (like, do you really need stemless and stemmed wine glasses? Jury is out…), there are also tons of affordable — and beautiful — glassware collections out there to help upgrade your tablescape. Below, we’re sharing a few of our favorite sets that are perfect for a high-end drink but won’t break the bank.

Inspired by vintage mid-century modern designs of the same style, these cut beaded drinking glasses from West Elm are the perfect addition to your glass-front cabinets or open shelving, where they'll catch the light beautifully.
